    I sure wish I could help, but I don't really know much about that model of Case IH, we had a Case CX80 we traded in on our kubota M8540, but that is a different model.

    I looked at CaseIH when I was shopping. I didn't like the A models because they were too basic. But then, I didn't like the SU model Kubotas either for the same reasons. I think the two tractors are very comparable though and actually a bit surprised the kubota was more expensive.

    Beyond all that, don't lose track of what everyone is saying about an FEL tractor in 2wd. You really need to get used to the idea that you need 4wd.

    It would be great if your dealer had a 2wd with FEL sitting on the lot that he'd let you play with for a few minutes. One bucket full of material and trying to back uphill and you'd know what we are saying.

    Yes,,,, you can add rear ballast to a 2wd and gain some productivity. But if you add enough to make it anywhere near as productive as a 4wd then it's going to be very light in the front when going uphill with an empty bucket.

    Thanks for the good advice. The same dealer has kubota and CASEIH. I'm just not finding as much info out there on the CASE IH.

    I have a JD 5325 2wd with FEL and its works fine for me. I use it to Tedder and rake hay. Also use it to move and load 4x5 round bales. But it's flat where I live and also if it is that wet I don't need to be in the hay field.

So is buying a 2WD Kubota worth giving up 4x4 on the Case? What are the actual advantages of the Kubota over Case (apples to apples). I've heard some negative things about the case: loader settling, loader frame blocks engine oil dipstick, and that new CASE IH are copies of a less desirable Fiat?.
    I've had John Deere in the past, but no experience with CASE IH or Kubota.
    I'm not sure where you are getting all the negatives from, but the Farmall 75A is the same basic tractor as the New Holland Workmaster 75 and neither are based on an old Fiat design. The Farmall A has only been in the CaseIH line up for few years now so that could explain why you don't see as much info on them.

    The Farmall 75A is a good solid economy tractor and will serve you well.

    Knowing where you live you have so many dealer choices. I know Bluegrass has a 4wd and 2wd Workmaster 75 on their lot. (I was looking at them last weekend) Not sure of their price. I do not know where the kubota 7040SU is. I will be getting the Case or New Holland later this spring. I like them because they are basic tractors. I find electronics a negative in the tractors in this price range for my use.

    What electronics on a Kubota M Series concern you?
